I think elopements are the ultimate in romance – and so do Marki + Andrija. From the moment they decided to get married, they knew they didn’t want a traditional wedding. They wanted their wedding to be something that felt personal, romantic and simple, without much production. Eloping was the perfect solution! Deciding to get married in Stowe, Vermont was equally simple. Years ago, Marki + Andrija took an idyllic vacation to Stowe. They biked along miles of winding country trails, hiked the beautiful forests, and had a picnic every day. They also told themselves then and there that if they ever got married, they would do it in Stowe. I can’t think of a more beautiful place to elope. Special thanks to Logan Cole who captured their magical day…
From Marki, “Planning an elopement was relatively simple – we hired a justice of the peace to perform the ceremony, and ordered cupcakes and a bouquet. I bought a wedding dress online, and voila! Everything was pretty much settled. The biggest decision I had to make was hiring a photographer. As Andrija and I would be the only people at our wedding, it was important to me to have some great pictures to remember our wedding, and to show friends and family. We hired the brilliant Logan Cole, who is based in CA (and we found on GWS!) and who kindly agreed to fly to Vermont with his awesome makeup artist, Amy Clarke.
Our wedding day was ten times more wonderful than I ever dreamed. We slept in, picked up cupcakes, champagne, and picnic supplies at the local markets, and had the world’s most perfect picnic on a grassy hill. We hopped into a canoe for a spin around the Waterbury Reservoir, and frolicked in a field of wild buttercups and spearmint. We met up with the justice of the peace and said our vows in a meadow at sunset, in the shadows of the Green Mountain. All in all, our wedding day was like magical perfection.”
What a beautiful, perfect wedding day! Congrats to Marki + Andrija!!
